A gun is fired at a target. At the moment of firing, the target is released and allowed to fall freely under gravity. Then the bullet :
(Assume zero air resistance)
Misses the target by passing above it
Hits the target
Misses the target by passing below it
May or may not hit
The correct option is B Hits the target Initial vertical component of the velocities (in downward direction) of both the bullet and the target are zero. So, the bullet and the target fall down by equal amount and thus the bullet hits the target.
